the staff was very helpful and very welcoming, I was kinda needy and they brought a iron up to my room instead of having me come down to get it, which was great because I was running late and have two little ones. The location is perfectly right outside of town. Was told they are in middle of remodel and...

The room we stayed smelt cigarette. The room was very dirty and there were kind of blood stains in the wall and bathroom. The bathroom doesn't have a sink. The bed sheets were dirty. The fridge wasn't working. Overall living in this motel was an awful experience.

This hotel should be shut down! It was disgusting! The first room I was put in had a ton of black hair in the bed, along with what looked like feces from a small animal. I was HORRIFIED. Because I booked through a third party website, the man at the office said he couldn't refund me 100%. He moved me...

First off, the office smells like they have been cooking curry in there. Second, my nonsmoking room smelled like someone had smoked in there or in a neighboring room. Everything was cleanish, would not walk around without shoes. Broken light switch in bathroom. Sheets and towels feel very cheap (expected for price). The worst part was the broken doorknob. I...

Advertised breakfast, but only served coffee. Advertised pool but closed for winter. Told employee that TV remote control did not work. Nothing done about it. Asks for extra pillows and received them. Room seemed clean.

Disgusting! The owners were so rude right off the bat. Rooms had mold every where, smelled nasty! DO NOT EVER STAY THERE!! They had irty floors and blankets. I asked for my money back and they didn't even try to accommodate me or listen to my concerns.

My room looked nothing like the photos on here. It looked like a room suitable for someone who only needed to rent the room by the hour (if you know what I mean). Was scared to walk around without shoes. Furniture old and stained. Most the switches to the light fixtures were broken. TV was a flat screen, but fuzzy...

This place was disappointing. The room was really stinky and only half assed clean. The door was not easy to open. One of the drawers in the dresser was turned upside down and was just hanging there, obviously broken. When I alerted the front desk he thought I wanted to have maintenance come fix it...no, just don't want to be...

When me and my two grown daughters checked in last Friday, we were shocked. The room was definitely NOT remodeled. There was a dirty bandaid hanging off of the peephole. The bathtub never quit running, and I saw a cockroach in it. The toilet would barely flush, and I noticed a plunger in the bathroom. Gross. Thank goodness we had...

I just wish I had read the reviews before checking in. First the good, it was clean and did not stink. The bad: The AC was noisier than normal. The bathtub did not drain. The toilet was small and loose. The light switch in the bathroom was broken. A light bulb in the bathroom was missing. A light fixture was...
